Natick may be less of a household name than its close neighbor Framingham, but it is an increasingly popular residential choice for commuters to Boston from the Metro West area. Located just 16 miles from the city, it houses three shopping centers – the giant Natick Mall, the Cloverleaf Marketplace and the Sherwood Plaza.
The hub of activities within the town is Natick Center, also known as downtown Natick. It’s a historical area with Colonial red brick buildings and steepled churches intermingling with modern edifices. The town common is often the site of many community events, including concerts and holiday celebrations throughout the year.
South Natick, along the shores of the Charles River, is the more rural part of town with open green spaces and no major housing developments. North Natick is mostly residential, with one strip mall offering such stores as Staples, a Super Stop & Shop, a Panera Bread and a few other small shops. The most populous section of the town is the stretch of Route 135, which houses thousands of condos and apartments located on the streets across from one of Natick’s two MBTA rail stations. The part of Route 9 that runs through East Natick is where you’ll find the most retail stores and businesses.
If you like Colonial homes, you can choose from a good supply of them in West Natick where there was a housing boom just after WWII in 1948. More luxurious Victorian era homes line the streets in a section north of downtown called Walnut Hill. And if you’re a first time buyer looking for something more affordable, the Wethersfield neighborhood of Natick is a classic fifties style development of Campanelli one-floor slab style ranches.
Natick’s border towns include five of the state’s most affluent communities – Weston, Dover, Wayland, Sherborn and Wellesley, so keeping up with the Joneses just might be an issue. However a brand new $80 million Natick High School is currently under construction and is slated for completion during the coming school year.
A number of notables hail from Natick, including retired Patriots quarterback Doug Flutie, author Harold Kushner, who wrote “When Bad Things Happen to Good People,” and Harvey Leonard, WCVB-TV’s chief meteorologist.
Natick also claims fame for housing Casey’s Diner, one of the nation’s oldest 10-stool diners still in operation.
